Good morning ... colleagues, I want to make you aware of the proposed 
Professional Practice Guideline on Psychological Assessment & 
Evaluation.      It updates the current “Test User Qualifications,” 
guideline.      Because psychological testing is a unique element of the 
psychologist scope of practice in most jurisdictions, this Guideline is 
important for protection of the profession and the public.           
Please review and comment, and please send this to all of your networks 
and colleagues.  We seek comments from a broad range of psychologists of 
varying specialties, working with a diversity of communities.    Happy 
Thanksgiving from my family to you and yours! Jared       Jared L. 
Skillings, PhD, ABPP Chief of Professional Practice, American 
Psychological Association

Call for Comments: Proposed Guidelines for
Psychological Assessment and Evaluation

      In accordance with Association Rule 30.8, the Board of 
Professional Affairs (BPA), in collaboration with the Committee on 
Professional Practice and Standards (COPPS) and the Committee on 
Psychological Tests and Assessment (CPTA), seeks public and member 
comments on proposed Guidelines for Psychological Assessment and 
Evaluation. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist and inform 
psychologists of best practice when psychological instruments, including 
psychometric tests and collateral information, are utilized within the 
practice of psychological assessment and/or evaluation. APA has 
developed guidelines on a range of topics. It is believed that this set 
of guidelines, pending final approval, will be an important addition to 
APA’s guidelines portfolio.
